I would use a combination of Melarase PM and Plato's Scar Serum, followed by Yag laser to help reduce the severity of your scar. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

This should improve without therapy but you can try OTC meds for acne. If not improving then go see a dermatologist. A vascular laser can be used in the future if the redness persists.

This is due to trauma/inflammation. Ice may help decrease any swelling and redness, but this will resolve over time. Please see a board certified dermatologist for treatment of acne. Best, Dr. Emer
